Objectives of the Program:

The Endocrine Surgery Fellowship at NYU Grossman School of Medicine is a one-year, multidisciplinary program accredited by the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons. The goal of our program is to train the next leaders in advanced academic endocrine surgery.

The Endocrine Surgery Fellowship allows fellows to gain a thorough understanding of the work-up, operative management, and postoperative care of patients with endocrine disorders that require surgery. During the program, fellows work under the supervision of faculty who are internationally recognized experts in endocrine surgery and manage services composed of residents, advanced practice providers, and medical students.

Highlights of the Fellowship:

The fellowship rotation schedule reflects multiple facets of endocrine surgery including treatment of diseases of the following organ systems:

endocrine pancreas
Our approximate annual case volume is as follows:

thyroid: >700
parathyroid: >300
adrenal: >60
pancreas: >50
neck dissection: >30
Our program is structured to give fellows increasing autonomy as they progress through the year, functioning as a junior attending whose responsibilities include managing the endocrine surgery clinic and multidisciplinary thyroid neoplasia clinic, staffing operative cases, providing resident and student education, and participating in clinical research.

Clinical skills highlighted by the program include instruction and proficiency of ultrasound, fine-needle thyroid biopsy, intraoperative laryngeal nerve monitoring, flexible laryngoscopy and laryngeal ultrasound, transoral thyroidectomy and parathyroidectomy, minimally invasive adrenalectomy, and radiofrequency ablation. Our fellows also play a leading role in our Endocrine Surgery Research Program, specializing in multidisciplinary clinical and health services research.

Average Thyroid Case Volume: 700
Average Parathyroid Case Volume: 300
Average Adrenal Case Volume: 60

Neuroendocrine Tumor (NET)

Number of evaluation and management of NET (enteric and pancreatic only) cases per year: 30
Number of operative NET (enteric and pancreatic only) cases per year: 15
NET case discussions per year: 4

The fellow has the option to participate in a Multidisciplinary NET (enteric and pancreatic only) tumor board that meets monthly.

If the fellow desires there is an internal opportunity to engage in a more robust NET experience. The fellow has the opportunity to engage in a more intensive pancreas surgery/NET experience at our NYU Long Island campus with Dr. Allendorf, depending on the level of fellow interest. In addition, fellows with dedicated career interest in pancreas surgery  will have the opportunity to work with the hepatobiliary service at the Manhattan campus, lead by Dr. Christopher Wolfgang.
